Georgia ex-leader Saakashvili deported from Ukraine to Poland: official


Kiev (AFP) – Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who fell out with Ukraine’s leader Petro Poroshenko, was on Monday deported to Poland, the country’s border guard service said.

Saakashvili had resided in Ukraine “illegally” and had therefore been sent to the country where he initially came from, the service said in a statement. After falling out with Poroshenko, Saakashvili, who had been stripped of his passport, broke through the Ukrainian-Polish border with the help of his supporters last September.
